This was Bautista channeling his inner Tarantino. I loved the play on light and darkness and shadows, but you could smell the movie’s twist a mile away. This was still On the Job na ber ber lite.
At least Aljur Abrenica finally stepped out of his Machete mode and acted alive for once. I wonder what Joel Torre and JM de Guzman could have done in the lead roles, though.
